New charging stations will help modernize LAUSD’s bus fleet

Los Angeles Unified is adding 24 electric charging stations as part of a plan to modernize bus transportation in the district.

Six of the charging stations will be added to the Sun Valley bus yard and 18 to the Gardena yard, according to a news release from the school district.

“Los Angeles Unified is doing its part to reduce its carbon emissions and help combat the existential crisis of climate change,” said Superintendent Alberto M. Carvalho. “The new charging stations will help the district support its current electric buses and allow us to scale the number of buses to serve current and future students. Our electric bus fleet will streamline and enhance student safety and transportation, while also incorporating an ecologically sustainable practice into the District’s operations.”

The program aligns with the 2022-26 strategic plan to modernize infrastructure in the district, according to the release.
